Our prayers for all animals continue to circle the earth, to
uplift humanity's consciousness, and to bless the animals themselves.
Thank you for joining people around the world who are praying this
prayer in many different languages but all with the same love:
"COMPASSION ENCIRCLES THE EARTH FOR ALL BEINGS EVERYWHERE"
My mother was 95 this year. She and I shared many sweet moments
over the years, but about a month ago, something extraordinary
occurred. I was saying goodbye to her before leaving on a trip.
Mom was not a very expressive person when it came to emotions.
She preferred to communicate with humor and old fashioned
hospitality. But that day, as I was heading for her door after
giving her a hug, I looked back and saw something in her eyes I hadn’t
seen before. At the time I wasn’t sure what it was. Two
days later she died. As we headed back home down the highway, I
understood what it was I had seen in her eyes. I believe she knew
somehow deep inside that she wouldn’t see me again, and what I saw was
absolutely a mother’s longing to never lose sight of her children.
I will never forget that look in my mother’s eyes. In honor of
her and of all human and animal mothers, let us dedicate this week to a
prayer and a vision. We give thanks for motherhood, and yet we
recognize that there are billions of loving mothers whose precious
babies have been taken from them. We recognize that motherhood
itself has become a commodity creating wealth for a few and tears and
agony for the many. But we give thanks because we know the truth.
The love that I saw in my mother’s eyes, and the love that we hear in
the cries of chickens, cows, elephants, and so many others is more
powerful than greed and fear. That Love that lives in all hearts
is creating a new world. It is alive and strong and moving us all
toward a compassionate world of liberation and peace for all
